Overview

New York State Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community

With support from New York State Department of Health, The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, HANYS is forming a New York State Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community. Together, we’ll connect teams from across the state to accelerate adoption of the 4Ms — What Matters, Medication, Mentation and Mobility framework.

Guided by expert faculty and an all-teach, all-learn model, teams will participate in monthly webinars, attend virtual events, test changes to improve care for older adults and submit regular reports to IHI. In return, sites will transform care delivered to older adults and earn official recognition from IHI as an Age-Friendly Health System participant.

In recognition of the variation in COVID-19 recovery and preparedness across the state, HANYS will be sponsoring two cohorts:

  • Upstate - beginning November 2020
  • Downstate - beginning February 2021

Note: Hospitals and health systems already participating in a national Age-Friendly Action Community are encouraged to also join the New York State Action Community.
